What is xfdashboard?

xfdashboard provides a GNOME shell dashboard like interface for use with
Xfce desktop. It can be configured to run to any keyboard shortcut and
when executed provides an overview of applications currently open
enabling the user to switch between different applications. The search
feature works like Xfce's app finder which makes it convenient to search
for and start applications.


Release notes for 0.9.1
xfdashboard-0.9.1 "Gradients! Whoohoooo!" was released on 2021-03-19.

This is a development release.

* New feature: Move XfdashboardApplication out of library
  libxfdashboard into application xfdashboard and turn
  libxfdashboard into a complete library
* New feature: Implemented a new color class XfdashboardGradientColor
  which support solid colors (single colors) and path gradients. Path
  gradient will follow a path (the outline) and draw a gradient
  orthogonal with color stops along this path.
* New feature: Outlines (through XfdashboardoutlineEffect) do now
  use the new XfdashboardGradientColor to support the usual solid
  colors as befeofre as well as a new path gradient.
* Changed default theme to make use of new path gradients at outlines. 
* Removed all xfdashboard_*_get_default() function to access single
  instances of the subsystems/component, like plugins manager etc.,
  as these single instances should now to access through
  XfdashboardCore and its xfdashboard_core_get_*(...) functions
* Dropped support of Xfconf legacy (versions below 4.13.0) because
  of new XfdashboardSettings and XfdashboardPluginSettings object.
  Therefore also the dependency on dbus-glib was dropped which was
  need for Xfconf legacy.
* Smaller bug-fixes
* Clean-ups
* More API documentation
* Updated localizations:
    bg, de, es, eu, fr, he, it, ja, nb, pl, sr, zh_CN
